Jeanette123 replied to Jeanette123's topic in Working and Skilled VisasThank you so much for your response Richard. Could you recommend a migration agent who could assist us with the process, especially someone who has good experience working on similar tricky visas as this one? I’d like to send them my partners resume to review. I know the immigration laws seem to be constantly changing at the moment to we want to start the process ASAP. Once we know we have a good chance, we will be moving back to the UK immediately. Would you say the first thing we should do is attend Vetassess?
Jeanette123 posted a topic in Working and Skilled VisasHi, My partner and I would really appreciate any help with skilled visas for Plumbers. I have so many questions and I keep getting told different things. We're wanting to go down the route of skilled migration as a Plumber in Australia. We have both lived in Australia previously for 4 years (I was sponsored) but left due to family reason back at home in the UK. So, my partner has a NVQ level 2 in plumbing (Not a level 3). Do you know if NVQ level 2 is enough of a qualification for a Plumber? He has over 5 years plumbing experience in the UK, and 2 years plumbing experience in Australia. We've been advised that to pass VETASSESS you need to have either Gas or Roofing experience. However, he doesn’t have much experience working with gas and no experience in roofing. My partner is currently completing a Gas course to get the knowledge, would this be enough for VETASSESS? Please can you give us some information about how hard or easy the test was for you. Any tips, advice or guidance would be great. Thank you in advance for your help. Jeanette
